Every year there’s some dude averaging like 38 pts and 15 rebounds (in 32 minutes) in some high school out there. In fact there are lots of guys doing that. It tends to happen when you have a college or even NBA body trapped inside a high school aged kid. This is the profile of a top college recruit and these kids have been hounded by universities since the 5th grade.
However, only a handful make it to the pros and not all the top recruits wind up being college stars. But even though these kids might not make it past the NCAA it doesn’t change how dominant they were in high school. And man is it fun to watch them destroy the competition.
Here are ten pretty sweet highlight videos from top basketball recruits from around the country (and the schools they’re committed to)
